Thermory Solid Knotty Pine Wood Decking
Thermory USA is the exclusive distributor of Thermory products, including decking, cladding, interior flooring, and porch flooring. Thermory intensely heat-treated wood products are produced from sustainable, renewable raw materials harvested in the United States, using original perfected technology that has been in use in Europe for over 15 years. There are NO chemicals added in the process, only heat and steam, resulting in higher dimensional stability and lower equilibrium moisture content compared to conventional hardwood products.
For example, Thermory interior flooring is the only solid wood product acceptable for use over radiant heat and able to be glued directly to concrete. That same level of dimensional stability and outstanding durability is featured in all of our solid hardwood products.
Maintaining your Thermory or Natural Aged
Thermory hardwood products feature a stunning, exotic dark color. This color can be maintained with a uv protectant oil or allowed to naturally age to a rich silver /grey color.
Responsibly High Grade
Thermory is processing about 850,000 board feet monthly of only the highest-grade raw material. Thermo-ash originates from well-maintained and responsibly-managed forests in the USA where good growing conditions and strict drying standards ensure the highest quality. Color and grade are sorted prior to export, manufacturing and importing to ensure that the Thermory name is synonymous with excellence.
A brief overview of the Thermal Modification Process
- Process uses only heat and steam (no chemicals)
- Heated to approx 400°F reducing moisture content
- Equalized at 6% moisture content by adding steam
- Changes color to exotic brown through out full thickness of the wood
- Rearranges cell structure to reduce movement related to moisture
- Removes wood sugars for increased durability against rot and insects
